Beskrivelse

The congress theme, "Dilemmas in Ageing Societies", will bring into focus the challenges of ageing societies and questions that arise from theory and empirical studies about older people’s lives. Dilemmas can be found at all levels:
◾At the societal level: meeting for example the needs of an increasing number of older people with a decreasing work force and a low fertility rate. (What are the consequences of the typical family becoming an expanded four-generation family, with two generations of retired seniors?
◾At the level of intervention: understanding the effects of prevention, diagnostics, medical treatment, rehabilitation and care on healthy life expectancy. (Is the growing awareness about the benefits of physical activity likely to increase healthy behaviours?)
